Post 303: Art Journal Spread- You are Awesome...

Hi friends!

I'd like to share an Art Journal Spread- You are Awesome...This was for my October DT work for PABD, all the details can be checked out here. I'm also celebrating my 1st blog anniversary by having a few giveaways, they are open world-wide, if you'd like to take part, all the details are here.

- For this Art Journal Spread, I have used an old book, adhering a couple of pages together to lend it strength and then applying a wash of white gesso over the pages to prepare the surface.
- After that I have added strips of PABD’s Rainbow Hues and Prickly Cuteness washi tapes to create the pattern.
- Next, the gorgeous and traditional animal images from the PABD - Madhubani stamp were stamped onto printer paper and then glued onto the journal using mod podge.
- After this I did some watercoloring & the washi tapes acted as a good resist to the colors.
- Towards the edges of the page, stencil work was done using black soot distress ink and the PABD Stencil- Dimensional.
- Further, the title was stamped using the PABD-Bold You stamp and the smaller sentiments were heat embossed in white onto black strips.
- To add more interest, background stamping was done with a few sentiments using black archival ink. 
- Then, some white dots were added using a white gel pen and white acrylic paint.
- In the end, black and white splatter was created to bring the whole design together.

Here are a few photos of the Art Journal Spread:
